Conveniently located in the borough of Rotherham, the quiet village of Aston has a wide range of local amenities, as well as great transport links. Situated just 10 miles from Sheffield city centre, 7 miles from Rotherham and 9 miles from Worksop, Aston is an ideal base for commuters and families alike. But what’s it actually like to live in Aston, and what should you know before buying or selling a house in Aston?

The traditional farming village of Aston has the friendly and welcoming feel of a small village, combined with the convenience of having everything you need locally, giving you the ideal blend of rural and urban life. Living in Aston, you can expect to be greeted by passersby and to be quickly integrated into the day to day life of the village.

Children benefit from numerous local primary schools, which lead onto Aston Academy, a secondary school and post-16 centre which has been rated ‘good’ consistently by Ofsted.

House Prices In Aston

You’ll find that house prices in Aston are pretty typical for what you’d expect in South Yorkshire. The average price of a 3 bedroom semi-detached house in Aston is around £165,000 whilst a 4 bedroom detached property can be purchased for around £270,000. First time buyers and investors may be interested to learn that a 2 bed terraced property can be purchased for as little as £120,000 in Aston.

However, as always, house prices are dependent on a wide range of different factors including the size and style of house, its condition and décor, and features such as a garage or garden.

Things To Do In Aston

Aston boasts beautiful landscapes and countryside, thanks to its prime location at the edge of the city. Situated between Rother Valley and Ulley country parks, there are an abundance of easily accessible public footpaths and picturesque trails leading around the village and to neighbouring villages and parks. For those with children, you’ll be pleased to learn that both Aston Springs Farm and Gulliver’s Valley are just a couple minutes drive from the village, offering the perfect entertainment for your little ones during school holidays and weekends.

If shopping is more your thing, the large shopping centre of Meadowhall is just a 10 minute drive up the M1, offering a wide range of shops, restaurants and entertainment. Similarly, Parkgate retail park, Crystal Peaks shopping centre and the bustle of Sheffield city centre are all easily accessible by both car and public transport.

Aston is also fortunate enough to be the home of Aston Hall Hotel. This historic property was built in 1772 and has been beautifully restored to offer gorgeous hotel rooms, a luxurious restaurant and a gym. Not only that, but Aston Hall also hosts regular events and activities to keep the whole family entertained and to host any visiting guests you may have.

Selling A House In Aston

It’s good news if you’re looking to sell a house in Aston, as the village is ever growing in popularity, thanks to its fantastic schools, brilliant transport links and extensive facilities. With house prices currently at a record high, there has never been a better time to consider putting your house on the market.

For example, I’ve recently had the pleasure of marketing a gorgeous three bed semi-detached house in Aston with an impressive side garden, which is now going through the conveyancing process. The vendors were overwhelmed by the huge response to their property, and we had offers on the property within days of going on the market. After just a week, the property was sold subject to contract, and unfortunately several buyers missed out – meaning they’re still eagerly looking for a house in Aston.

If you’re thinking about taking the next step, the first thing to do is to have a valuation on your property to find out what could be available to you. If you’d like a chat about selling your property, or advice on the current housing market, I’m always happy to talk you through things. Give me a quick call or drop me an email to get the ball rolling.
